        Never expect consistency from the government or any any institution of any size. You're just a number, not a person /customer. Randomly you will be hit with this or that policy, and then the next time randomly you will not.... Sorry for the cynicism it's true and we all know it

        No need to be sorry: that's simple facts!

        Govt doesn't give a toss.

        Corporate gives a huge toss --- for its profits and its billionaire founders. Not for its customers. And any other impression, when a business is young, is just a loss leader.

        Amazon Prime membership... Thanks @lithium. Yes, this deserves a rethink.
        It's cheaper in this country. But what are we paying for?

        It should be rebranded "Just Give Us A Bit More Money."

        Come to think of it, it means they must be implementing *slower delivery to non-prime customers* !

        @Tchoupitoulas - I actually heard the RD-x over a year ago at this point (both the mk1 and mk2 mods) and I put my name on the waiting list then (I already have a stock 2021 LCD-x sitting and ready to go). I wanted to hear them because this is the final mod version and I wanted to confirm that I still wanted to wait for RD to restart modding. TLDR... I'm going to keep waiting.

        Further update - DHL arrived to pick up the headphones today. Unfortunately, they're going back to Slovenia... so I assume it will be quite some time before they make their way back to me.

        used canned air or other clean & light pressure air source. Use said tool to lightly blow the back of the driver. Start further away and slowly get closer if the job isn't getting done. Senn driver will be fine.

        Given the price for one cable, get two of them, cut both and reconnect the two males via a terminal block which you can then insulate using tape, might not be easy on the eye but it should work

        @mitochondrium ... yep, I was going to do that if no one could point me at a finished product. It will be hidden behind the TV so it's not like anyone will see the splice. But I'm sure my wife will ask whether its safe (that's what she does)

        Well terminal blocks are standard issue to connect lamps to wiring and back when there still light bulbs those drew more current than most TV do nowadays ( probably do not need to convince you). You may use a heat shrink tube instead of tape for the insulation, might look more convincing

        If it seems fine I wouldn't be TOO concerned. Main concern with impact damage on a hard drive is that the drive heads will make contact with the magnetic platters, and if that didn't happen you should be fine

        In particular heads hitting a spinning platter is very bad, but in an unpowered drive the heads should be "parked" and less sensitive to impact. Also, the packaging has done its job, like the crumple zones on a car, so much better than an impact to a bare HDD. I'd do a scan for bad sectors and check the SMART info before you reshape/rebuild your RAID with it, but probably nothing to worry about.
